Ascend Prime Steak & Sushi, Archer Hotel and The Charter Hotel receive the coveted AAA Four Diamond Award

BELLEVUE, Wash. — AAA Washington is excited to announce the addition of three exceptional properties — one restaurant and two hotels — to the AAA 2020 Four Diamond Award list: Ascend Prime Steak & Sushi in Bellevue, Archer Hotel Redmond and The Charter Hotel Seattle, Curio collection by Hilton.

For more than 80 years, AAA has conducted professional, in-person property inspections on behalf of its member travelers. To earn the impressive AAA Four Diamond designation, hotels and restaurants must pass a rigorous evaluation that includes unannounced, in-person evaluations by AAA’s expert inspectors. In 2020, AAA added 125 hotels and 62 restaurants to the AAA Four Diamond Award list, making a total of 2,400 establishments throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.

The three outstanding Puget Sound properties join a sizable list of high-caliber hotels and restaurants in Washington with AAA’s Four Diamond designation.
